With its mild, dry year-round weather and enviable oceanside location, it’s easy to see why San Diego County is gaining popularity as a retirement destination. Just under 15% of the County’s 3.3 million residents are seniors aged 65 and older, and the number of older adults in the area is expected to grow by 2030.
Seniors who enjoy fresh air and sunshine can explore the dozens of public parks and county preserves, many of which offer restroom facilities, reservable picnic areas and paved walking paths. There are also a number of historic fishing piers and beaches that offer stunning sunset views. Shoppers will appreciate the many outdoor malls in the area, and various local theaters host well-known productions, speakers and bands.
Genworth’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey shows that the average monthly rate for assisted living care in San Diego County is $4,525. Given that the statewide average is $5,000, and that rates are much higher in other coastal areas, such as Oxnard ($5,845) and Santa Cruz ($6,800), San Diego County may be a great choice for retirees looking for affordable oceanside assisted living.
